Lenham Storage is celebrating its 70th birthday by commissioning a Mercedes-Benz Actros featuring nine classic Mercedes trucks from the 1960s on the back of the cab.

The Sittingbourne, Kent-based haulier specified the tractor with a GigaSpace cab, 510hp straight-6 engine, chrome highlights, a painted chassis and alloy wheels.

The truck was supplied by dealer Sparshatts of Kent, which has been supplying trucks and vans to Lenham for 42 years.

Lenham’s fleet includes a fully-restored 1976 bullnose Mercedes-Benz 1418 tractor in green, red and cream (pictured), which makes regular appearances at truck shows.

Operations director Andrew Fulcher said: “It is only fitting that our 70th anniversary Actros should highlight the important roles that Mercedes-Benz and Sparshatts of Kent have played in the success of Lenham Storage.”
